In support of the Arts in southeast Michigan, we’d like to tell you about an upcoming production at Canton’s The Village Theater at Cherry Hill. Located adjacent to the beautiful Cherry Hill Village subdivision in southwest Canton, the theater is the place to enjoy great local talent at reasonable prices in a truly gorgeous venue.
Spotlight Players Jr. will be producing Aladdin and His Wonderful, Magical Lamp next weekend, July 10-13. This cast of 45 local youth range in age from 5 through 17 and they will bring the magical story of Aladdin to the stage. Spotlight Players Jr. is a fresh, new theater group in the area offering kids ages 5 through 18 a theater experience for just $35, including costume.
Director Kristin Heitmeier says, “It’s a classic, familiar story with a few new twists and characters as well as upbeat music and spectacular special effects and staging. We wanted to create a great theatrical experience for all who attend and people won’t be disappointed – our cast is amazing!”
If you are not familiar with the story of Aladdin, here is a description of the story from the production company:
Aladdin and His Wonderful, Magical Lamp travels through time to the ancient streets of Shammar in Old Arabia. Aladdin, our mischievous and charming hero, is lured into a mysterious cave by the villainous Jammal and his evil sister, Halima, to obtain a magical lamp that will bring Jammal untold wealth and power. And to make matters worse, Aladdin and his trusty monkey, Alakazam, are on the run from the royal executioner, Chop-Chop, who protects Princess Jasmine, her mother – Queen Sultana — and her father, the Sultan. When Aladdin and Jasmine have a chance meeting in the crowded marketplace, it’s love at first sight and Aladdin vows to one day marry the princess. Pursuing his true love, he’s also juggling to keep the peace with his weary mother, sister and angry merchants, all of whom are tired of Aladdin’s antics. And as Aladdin gets embroiled in Jammal’s scheming, we’re introduced to not one, but three powerful genies, and a fire-breathing dragon as well as a bevy of colorful characters who assemble in this fast-paced, high-energy main stage musical.
This is a great show for the whole family and a wonderful way to spend a few hours enjoying some of Plymouth, Canton, and Northville Michigan’s talent and entertainment! Tickets make a great birthday gift, too!
